AT HOME - WARING BLENDER
I'm a huge fan of smoothies - I drink them every day - and this is a really stylish way to make one. I have a smoothie recipe book and I'm always trying out new ideas. My favourite is raspberry, lemon and banana.
The secret is to put ice in, too; that way, they aren't too heavy. I also have a Gaggia espresso machine; a cup of good coffee helps to get me up in the mornings.
MOBILE PHONE - MOTOROLA V600
My phone is the thing I rely on more than anything else - I couldn't do without it. I worry about getting hot ears sometimes, though. This is a quad-band phone; it's supposed to work all over the world, even in places where tri-band phones don't. But I've not had it long, so I didn't get a chance to try it in Shanghai at the Grand Prix. It's got Bluetooth and so has my car - a BMW Z4. I just put the phone on the dashboard and the car's hands-free system hooks up to it automatically. That's the kind of technology I like: simple to use and it works.
PDA - HP iPAQ h4150
This is my PDA, but I don't really use it much any more. I soon realised that mostly it just duplicates functions I already have on my laptop, and why would I carry two devices that do the same thing? For me, it's all about travelling with the minimum amount of stuff. I also tried a Blackberry, but after sitting in bars with people who are still checking their e-mail at 11pm I decided not to get one.
I don't want my evenings ruined. It is possible to keep on top of things without having to be on call 24 hours a day.
LAPTOP - SONY VAIO PGC C1XD
I travel a hell of a lot, but I'm vain so I won't carry a computer case - they are ugly. When I get on a plane I'm surrounded by men who all have the same black laptop bag; I really don't want to look like one of them.
This laptop is perfect - it's so small I can put it in my hand luggage, and I have it set up so that I can pick up my e-mails and get onto my office server from anywhere in the world. I just need a phone socket to plug into. I may have to replace it soon, but if I do I will get another Sony.
WISH LIST - VODAFONE 3G DATACARD
I really want one of these, but I need to get a new laptop with a card slot. If you work globally and need to keep in touch, this is a marvellous tool. You can get your e-mail and go online anywhere - on the beach, in the car, in your hotel room - without having to look for a wi-fi hotspot or a phone point. I'd also really like a Bang & Olufsen Beosystem, which has got to be the best-looking hi-fi.
